Fun Ways to Announce Your Pregnancy


First of all, let me say – YES… that’s right! My husband and I are expecting… TWINS! It came as quite the shock to us when the ultrasound tech nonchalantly said ‘Okay, there are two.’ My initial thought was ‘TWO WHAT?!’ But sure enough, there were and are two tiny, precious little peanuts growing in my belly. Admittedly, it took us a little time to get past the shock of it all and to get to the excited phase that we are at now. So here we are at the end of our first trimester and I decided it was time to make our big announcement… but first I wanted to have a few fun pics to share!



{BIG thanks to Angela Sleep Photography for taking the above photos for us!!!}

As I was searching for photo ideas, I came across a lot of fun ideas and decided to share them with you! Whether you are expecting 1, 2, 3 or 10 babies there is no shortage of creative ideas out there… and whether it’s your 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 10th pregnancy there are fun ways to incorporate the siblings or family pet.

These are just a few of the many ideas I came across. Do you have fun ideas you would like to share? Feel free to comment below! At what point in your pregnancy did you decide to tell the world that you were expecting?

Alisa was born and raised in Iowa before attending Arizona State University. She then lived in Chicago, Georgia and Florida before settling in Madison. From her nomadic lifestyle grew a love for the beach, as well as a fondness for spicy food, sushi, white wine, southern charm, Diamondbacks baseball and idyllic ocean sunsets. Alisa and her husband, Joe, are parents to Ava Mae (August 2012) and twins, Nora & Jacob (March 2014). Alisa is a work-from-home mompreneur with a passion for business, fashion, fitness, community and all things mom. When she’s not enjoying time at home with her family, you can find her sweating it out on the tennis court, training for the next big race, pinning her heart out on Pinterest and exploring Madison with her little ones (and sweet Boston Terrier, Peaches) in tow.


  1. We live in a smaller town and a family friend went to the population sign and had one child hold a sign with +1 the other child had the due date and the parents were in the photo too.

    • Thanks Sarah! Prayers are definitely appreciated!! And I will probably need them after the babies are born and I have 3 babies under the age of 2! 😉

  2. Congrats!! So exciting. My sister is having twins at the end of the year. For her pregnancy announcement she did a play on the “Knocked up” poster since they aren’t married. Super cute! Best wishes for a smooth pregnancy 🙂

    • Thank you! And what a fun idea – I’ve seen a few where people have used movie posters – SO creative! Good luck to your sister and congrats to being an Auntie!
